On Saturday, June 9, 2018 at the McCreary Alonsa Personal Care Home, Johnny Terrick, our beloved brother, brother-in-law and uncle passed away at the age of 68 years.
Johnny was born on July 7, 1949 in Ste. Rose du Lac to his parents Steve and Katie Terrick (nee Petrowski), the second oldest of their three children. Johnny attended Armstrong school and he loved and worked on the family farm with Mom and Dad until they all moved into McCreary in 1995. In 2005, Johnny moved into the Alpine Manor. He loved living there and enjoyed helping all of his fellow residents there.
Johnny could be found cutting grass, shovelling snow and helping people in anyway he could. He was a very honest, loving and caring person.
He loved all animals especially horses and he always wore his western wear. Johnny always looked forward to the rodeo. He loved to joke with people and play tricks on them.
Johnny loved music especially playing the fiddle. He played very well considering he never took any lessons.
He was predeceased by his parents; his father Steve in 1996 and his mother Katie in 2005.
Johnny will be forever remembered and missed by his loving sisters Beverley (Garry) Barker and Ella (Larry) Muzyka as well as his nieces and nephews.
